History

 For over 75 years, the Seewagen Family, renown in the world of tennis, has known that physical competence

empowers children to develop a healthy self-esteem.

In 1984, CATS: Children's Athletic Training School, Inc. developed a unique cross-training curriculum with the assumption

that if a child achieves success the child will have more fun.  

Kids' sports equal fun! The more success a child has the more fun the child will have leading to a lifelong love of being active.
